I HAVE AN IDEA for a TV show: "So You Think You Can Parent. " Instead of having wannabe stars perform for the judges, I'd have parents called onstage for the thoughtless things they do in the name of child-rearing. We'd never run out of contestants because of the number of clueless mothers and fathers out there. Take, for instance, the brain-dead parents of those 7-year-olds who performed that risque dance routine to Beyonce 's "Single Ladies" at a California dance competition.

Michael Jackson's This Is It looks beyond the reconstructed face and spindly body of the late King of Pop and basks in his meteoric light. Culled from more than 100 hours of footage documenting Jackson's preparing for what was to be his farewell concert stand, the film is a privileged peek at the creative process of pop music's Peter Pan. The show Jackson was putting together was a compendium - and cinematic reimagining - of his greatest hits,...

Sorry, we don't do sexy "singles" in this column. Just long-playing albums and music videos. Uh, some of them can get sexy, though. Especially if the talent's wearing spandex. ALL TAPPED OUT: Yeah, those blokes in Spinal Tap have sure made the British brand of "long-haired, tight-trousered hard-rocker" seem oblivious, pompously overblown and misogynist. Yet in their fake careers as Derek Smalls, David St. Hubbins and Nigel Tufnel, comedian/musicians Harry Shearer, Michael McKean and Christopher Guest offer an affectionate and knowing wink.

SOME LIKENED his passing to Elvis, but the worldwide PDEs (Public Displays of Emotion) were more like those poured out for John Lennon, who died 10 years younger than Michael Jackson, and also too soon. The Beatle had morphed from a pop star into a pop philosopher, putting out an idealistic, if somewhat addled, plea for a world of peace, equality and no borders. Jackson morphed from a pop star into a freak and then into a global superstar. He sang about a world of equality, but lived in a universe of bizarre behavior and wretched excess, symbolized by his gold-plated coffin.

The HBO series Flight of the Conchords, which recently completed its second season, chronicles a New Zealand novelty folk duo's desperately unsuccessful attempts to make it in the United States, or at least with an occasional American woman. But on stage, it's a different story. At the second of two Tower Theater shows on Saturday, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement played to a packed and raucously enthusiastic house that included Gov. Rendell and his family, as well as a few thousand rowdy twentysomethings.

An increasing number of people are fed up with the airing of sexually explicit, violent, degrading, stereotypical music videos on TV, especially during hours when teenagers haven't turned in for bed.

April 18, 2008 | This review appeared April 3 in coverage of the Philadelphia Film Festival By Carrie Rickey, Inquirer Movie Critic
Eileen Hall, 92, is one salty bird. The London-born thrush, a self-proclaimed lover of show tunes, croaks a killer version of "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" Her rendition of the Clash's 1981 punk plea - the thrust of which is, are we hooking up tonight, baby, or what? - opens Young @ Heart. The vibrant and vivacious documentary about a chorus of Massachusetts seniors, frisky fogies with an unlikely playlist, opened the 17th annual Philadelphia Film Festival. Bob Dylan's "Forever Young," Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U" and Sonic Youth's "Schizophrenia" are among their must-hears.
